NHL DFS: Point Shot Cheat Sheet – 8/2

I’m focusing on the main slate on Draftkings here which is the full five-game set. FanDuel is splitting the two slates with two early games and three late games. I prefer playing on DK personally so that’s where my focus will generally be but these plays are valid for both sites, slate dependant of course.


Auston Matthews (TOR)

Patrice Bergeron (BOS)

David Pastrnak (BOS)

Mitch Marner (TOR)

Alex Pietrangelo (STL)

Zach Werenski (CBJ)

Bo Horvat (VAN)

Pierre-Luc Dubois (CBJ)

Taylor Hall (ARI)

Claude Giroux (PHI)

Vladimir Tarasenko (STL)

Alex Edler (VAN)

Morgan Rielly (TOR)

Derek Stepan (ARI)

Matt Duchene (NSH)


Cam Atkinson (CBJ)

Ondrej Kase (BOS)

Phil Kessel (ARI)

Quinn Hughes (VAN)

Brad Hunt (MIN)

Top Goalies

Jordan Binnington (STL) – Binnington has been battle-tested and stood tall in the past for a very good defensive team overall in the Blues. Outside of the top line and Cale Makar on the blue line, Colorado I feel is limited offensively. If St. Louis can neutralize the 420 line, I like Binnington’s chances of producing a rock-solid effort.

Darcy Kuemper (ARI) – Kuemper is priced down and should see a good amount of shots. This game will depend a lot on which Nashville team shows up. The heavy offensively talented group or the fraudulent, inconsistent team that we’ve seen time and time again.

Freddy Andersen (TOR) – Look for Andersen to see a ton of shots because as we’ve seen in the past, Toronto tends to yield a ton of shots with their leaky defense. I don’t love Andersen’s price tag but the high-save upside is there.
